Soriano could help a number of teams. He is hitting .264 with 21 home runs and 71 RBI, with all of the homers coming since May 15.
He's still a productive player, one competing GM said, noting, "It all comes down to how much the Cubs are willing to pay his contract down. If they'd pay him down to $1 (million) to $2 million a year, I'd think a lot of teams would be interested.''
One source suggested before the deadline the Cubs offered at least one team to pay Soriano's $18-million salary down to $3 million. Soriano's contract runs through 2014.
